Ankle injuries sideline Hawks Jeff Teague, Kent Bazemore for Nets game
The Atlanta Hawks have spent much of 2015-16 working several players back from various injuries. And just when things were starting to get back to normal, two more injuries have popped up, both of the ankle variety.
Point guard Jeff Teague missed the Hawks' previous game against the Utah Jazz with a sprained left ankle he suffered against the Boston Celtics, and the team announced that he'll miss Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. Kent Bazemore, too, is out with an ankle injury, his a sprained right ankle suffered in that game against the Jazz:
INJURY UPDATE: Both Jeff Teague and Kent Bazemore are out tomorrow against Brooklyn with ankle sprains. #DFS— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) November 16, 2015
The Hawks should have Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha available, as both are listed as probable for Tuesday's game. Dennis Schroder will start in Teague's place once again, but Bazemore's replacement is a question mark for Atlanta. Could the absence on the wing mean Tim Hardaway Jr. sees his first time on the court as a member of the Hawks?
